Happening at PUBLICS
Sturenkatu 37—41 4b Helsinki
Taking place for the second time, Bookies is a weekend dedicated to enjoying bookworks and discussing publishing as artistic practice with some of the key figures currently active in the field. The main focus of this year's event is on artists' projects realized in book form. The weekend consists of a two-day seminar of talks, presentations and launches. The participating artist-publishers and distributors will offer a wide selection of books and other printed matter from their catalogues to the public in an on-site temporary bookshop. Aimed at artists, authors, students and curators operating at the intersection of art and publishing, Bookies will map out current shifts in the ever expanding field. All events are open for public free of charge.
